A Vision of India the Country
A Vision of India the Country
Description
Introduction

There has been a long-felt need for attractive and information books about modern day India. Books that are neither textbooks nor encyclopaedias, but are specifically attuned to the visual and reader-friendly requirements of the contemporary child.

A Vision Of India has been conceived as a continuing series, planned with the purpose of unveiling India’s modern profile for young readers. The individual volumes will then be compiled into a unique compendium on India. The information has been presented in the form of wide-ranging questions and answers, supported by colourful and accurate illustrations. The textual style has been kept simple but incorporates a wealth of interesting and varied knowledge.

This first book, A Vision of India Book 1-The Country, acquaints the reader with India as a country, its physical setting and political framework, its variety of people, their languages and scripts, national symbols and holidays, as well as other related information.

This series, dealing with post-independence India and the national identity, is perceived as a valuable addition to schools and libraries, as well as to the bookshelf of every child who is proud to be a citizen of India.

Back of the Book

Which tributary of the Indus river is believed to flow underground Why is the sand of Lakshadweep pure white?

Which is India’s largest tribal group? These are just a few of the many fascinating questions to which you will find answers in this book - The Country. Colourful illustrations enhance the wide-ranging information.

“I am an Indian and India is my country” - saying these words is not enough. Nationalism is much more than mere words. We must know the country we live in thoroughly. So let us begin our voyage of discovery here. This book is a part of our on-going series, A Vision of India.

I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
Mark, UK.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.
